Body Area Network (BAN) consists of various types of small physiological sensors, transmission modules and low computational components and can thus form an E-health solution for continuous all-day and any-place health monitoring. To protect confidentiality of collected data, a shared group key is usually deployed in a BAN, and consequently a secure communication group is generated. In this paper, we propose a bi-directional security and collusion resilience key management scheme for BAN, referred to as FoSBaS. Detailed analysis shows that the scheme can provide both forward security and backward security and resist against collusion attacks. Furthermore, the FoSBaS is implemented on a Sun SPOT based sensor network testbed to evaluate its performance. Experimental results show that a group key can be updated within 102.13 ms with 60.22 mJ energy consumption on a 12 node BAN with 28 bits pairwise key.
